Wondering what the deal is with carbon cubes? Or how some part of the game works? 

The entire team + BackerKit folks will be on here to (hopefully) answer any question you might have!

Project Update: Daybreak nominated for two big awards!

Hi all! Really exciting update for ya:

Daybreak was just nominated for the prestigious Kennerspiel des Jahres!!

Daybreak's German title is e-Mission and is published there by Schmidt Spiele


This is one of the biggest awards in boardgames, and we're 1 of 3 games to have made the shortlist! Matt has a second game on the shortlist (Ticket To Ride Legacy), so we especially like his chances 🙃

Also, we're also a finalist for Best Board Game Award at the 2024 Games for Change festival!



How cool is that?? If you've been enjoying Daybreak, consider giving it a rating on BGG? And we just got new copies in at Amazon and CMYK, so if you're looking for extras or gifts, you can get them there!

Three more quick things…

📦 The box replacements that folks requested are shipping NOW. So you should be getting yours soon. West coast US folks, you might have already received them, even.

♟️ Later this month, Matteo will demo Daybreak, facilitate a chess-hacking workshop, and be on a panel about an upcoming book on games and politics. If you're in London, you should go!

Where: Pelican House, London
When: Saturday 22nd of June
Tickets: https://tickettailor.com/events/theworldtransformed/1216526

🏫 And finally, from a high school teacher in Boulder, CO:

We ended up getting 20 copies for two classrooms and spent 3 days learning and playing Daybreak. It was a rich experience for the students. All told, over 300 students played the game and were stoked to be able to do so in class. It really brought in a lot of topics (resilience, value of research, investment, women's rights, geoengineering, policy issues) into discussion that don't usually make it into the climate discussion. You should know that making and sharing this is making a difference and opening up perspectives for kids about the future.

Reading that totally made our day.

Hi, It's been some time since this was shipped out, but I only recently got back to the states. My parents said they never received this package. Is there a possibility there was an issue during shipping?

It has been 4 months since an update on this issue and stating replacement boxes will be sent. When will we receive an update on this? By now we should have some sense of a timeline on when to expect these to arrive.

Project Update: Donations, reviews, and ratings!

Hi internet friends,

Some great news to share:

During the campaign, we pledged to donate $1 per backer to nonprofits working in climate and environmental justice causes. We sent those donations late last year, and I wanted to share where it went!

  • $5,000 to WE ACT: This organization works on behalf of communities of color and low income residents in NYC to keep them prioritized in environmental planning, policy, and decision making.
  • $5,000 to BSSK: The Indian nonprofit BSSK (Baikunthapur Sishu Seva Kendra) focuses on rural people of in the Sundarbans, where its citizens are regularly affected by devastating storms, rainfall, floods, and drinking water contamination. 

BSSK used the funds to support awareness and training of close to 300 participants on climate change impacts, hygiene, and sanitation. Here's a pic of one of the sessions:



What else? One of our favorite boardgame channels—No Pun Included—had a GREAT review of Daybreak:




And finally, we hope you've had a chance to play Daybreak! if you have, do you have a second to drop a rating on Boardgamegeek?

https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/334986/daybreak/ratings?rated=1&comment=1

10s only. Just kidding. But really. Kidding! Do what your heart tells you.

I may have missed it, if so, apologies. However, I haven't seen any updates on the digital web version of the game, and since I'm back to web-based versions of other boardgames (and adulting is the cVnt it is in terms of gathering with friends) it just downed on me it'd be nice to give it a go online.

Project Update: Box damage survey

Hi all,

Now that nearly everyone has received their copy of Daybreak (woo! 🥳) we're going to make things right on the box issues that some folks had.

If your box was damaged, please fill out this survey:

https://forms.gle/Ngu58rM9Qbznzwcf8

You'll see that there are 4 options that you can choose:

  1. Get a replacement box mailed to you
  2. Get a 40% off discount code at cmyk.games
  3. Get a $15 refund
  4. Just note that you had an issue, but don't need anything

And please reply if you had *any* box issues, even if you're going to choose #4, just so we know the extent of the issue. And for any non-box replacement parts, email us at [email protected] instead.

Thanks!

Alex.

I bought this game, cause it seemed to be very fun and in the faq it says you dont know if there will be other languages. maybe if there will be high success in future. The game arrived a few days ago and... there is a german version out in retail since september? And its 25€ less the price than here... thats sad. really sad. I only know it from kickstarter directly that the guys there ALWAYS should get their copies even before retail starts to produce...

Hi there, Immediately upon opening Daybreak, I concluded for myself that the game needed a box insert. The card boxes the game came with would be too tight a finicky for the number of times I expected to play it, and the game was slow to set up and pack up. And, with the damaged caused to games by shipping, I concluded that the innards of the game needed some TLC and love. I was trained as an Industrial Designer so I whipped up a quick Box Insert prototype out of cardboard and masking tape and it's been working great so far for the 20 games or so I've played since Dec 20th. I wanted to make the design freely available for other backers to do DIY as I have done with cardboard. If there is interest, I could possibly make a printable cutting template or an STL to 3D print! The forums don't really have a capacity to add images. I've taken them and you can view it here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1BhMEkyFGMDabvhdYANo03tLSupbIGumK?usp=sharing

Hi. May I know if Daybreak shipped from Gamequest to Malaysia provide any tracking no? I have checked my email, spam, junk but never receive anything yet. Any backers from Malaysia got their game already?

Can someone tell me what the 5 Europe starting cards are? My copy of daybreak somehow only arrived with 4 of them, and with the 4 Europe start cards that I have being so wildly different from the other countries, I'm sure I can't just sub in a random project and have a proper game experience :(
